Zombies from the snake pits of the Snake Cult, they have been reanimated by foul powers of the Snake Goddess. Rumored to be the bodies of an elite Empire Legionnaire Legion, The Third Legion sent on a strike mission to subdue a Snake Cult uprising, they are likely captured and devoured by the snakes in the pits of the Snake Cult hideouts. It may likely be true, as they march under Maltise with plenty of javelins, and the old Empire shields. However, they don't use the empire broadswords, but instead a spear. They excel at keeping cavalry at bay, and they have a reputation for taking down infantry with ease, despite their weapon's disadvantage.
Their rotting faces and lifeless eyes can spook even the most courageous knights. The fact that they can withstand damage that most soldiers can't cause many to lose faith in stopping them. Their high endurance is partially due to their state of life, trapped between both life and death.
Fortunately, for those who are brave enough to continue to fight them, they can easily notice that the these zombies are not immortal, and a series of rapid and consecutive melee strikes can easily end their existence on this realm. If all else fail, get within the minimum range of the spear and they will have difficulty facing you.
